CFIA Letters

Please be advised, on July 2, 2014 the Government of Canada repealed the requirement for pre-registration of construction materials, packaging materials and non-food chemicals used in federally registered meat establishments through changes to the Meat Inspection Regulations, 1990.

The CFIA no longer requires industry to pre-register construction materials, packaging materials, non-food chemicals and working apparel. Therefore, the CFIA will no longer be pre-approving these materials.
